Scarecrow with Sunflowers

My mom's birthday card....shhhh!!  Don't tell....

I made the scarecrow earlier in the week (details in the post below) and the fence was left over from a scrapbooking project (see   Fall Fun!)
Anyway, attached two layers of fence with pop dots...added sunflowers cut from Walk In My Garden at 11/2" 1 1/4", and 2" on shadow, regular, glued together, inked, gold gel pen on some too.  Worked the sunflowers in between the fence layers (really happy with that look!)  Sentiment is George, (shadowed and doodled), paper is DCWV 2008 Fall Stack, and I've never used so much ink in my life....everything has it!

I made this little guy to put on a card (which I am making today.)   He's cut on 3" blackout and I cut an extra head because I think it is easier to make the face on just the head.  His eyes are two hole punches, white and black, detailed with a white gel pen.  His nose is a handcut triangle....sharpie mouth...and orange chalk cheeks.  The hat is the fisherman's hat...cut in brown/green...layered and inked.  Attached rafia to the bottom and a 1" sunflower (shadow and regular, button attached) from Walk in my Garden.  The shirt is cut from the Garden boy in plaid, overalls are the railroad engineers (I wanted that center pocket), and the shoes are the farmers.  Attached little bits of rafia to the arms and legs.  Now to work on that card........

Hey All Star!

My first project with EveryDay Paper Dolls!  Basketball player was one at 3"....used a sticker for the number......pens to embellish him.   Face is hand drawn.  The large net  and the big bsketball are from the same cartridge, cut at 3" real-dial size.  "Hey" is from Opposites Attract (circle feature - backed with black) and "All Star" is from Pooh Font (Marker)

Something to Crow About

I love how this little crow turned out.  He is made out of Doodlecharm's eggs!   I cut an assortment of sizes (on real dial - those regular cuts are tiny) and made bunches of the little crows.(Pictures coming soon!)  I'm going to use some on a fall layout. 

The body of this one is 5"' head is 4".   I cut the bottom part of a yellow egg for the beak.....2 1/2" eggs for feathers.   The legs are cut from the Animal Kingdom turkey...can't remember what size.  The hat is the Pioneer boy from PDDU, cut real dial size at 1 1/2" - embellished it with flower punch, a button, and some doodling. 

Paper is DCWV green stack ( I LOVE this one!) and sentiment is computer generated.  Added some flower punches to the sentiment square and tied it off with a raffia bow.
